7:05 pm
 i'm looking at the rada there is rain 10 to 15 miles west and if it is out there it is probably going to take an hour and maybe more to move on through. we're in a holding pattern we'll go to espn news and tonight we will have the nats and brewers in game 2 of the four-game weekend series. hopefully some baseball for you ahead. next batter. the fly to left. lind, drops the ball, two runners score. izturis, given a double. angels, bottom of the third, lind, with two on, deep left-center. looking for redemption and finding it. homering off santana, to tie it up at 3. top 6, same score, guerrero, he went 2-5, and look at this,
7:06 pm
solo-homer. 11th of the season. 4-3 angels. rivera, down the right-field line. 6-3 angels. and they go on to win, and they avoided they're first three game skid so soon. only team in the majors that haven't lost four-straight. santana, fourth-straight win, and toronto has dropped 8-10. >> "what 2 watch 4" tonight. rockies host the giants, put an end to colorado's four-game winning-streak. de la rosa, looks to put an end to the giants and he'll face martinez. the giants will try to tie the rockies for the wildcard lead. the marlins are lingering three
7:07 pm
games back, and they play the second of a three-game set in atlanta, which is four games out . >> so, the battle for the n.l. wildcard has landed at coors field, and to chat more about the rockies and giants, we welcome in keith, the m.l.b. insider, got within a game of the rockies, with the win, what can we expect tonight. >> well, you'll see a club, that i think, resembles the ideal rockies' roster. tulowitzki, missed the game and he's back in the lineup tonight. and they'll be much better, having him out there, and, getting him back, and ian stewart back, at third, and they have gonzalez, leading off, sliding fowler to the two-spot. and spilborghs out of the lineup. without gonzalez. so, they're a better club, and defensively, as well.
7:08 pm
because they have two true centerfielders for them. >> how good has de la rosa been? >> excellent. i believe it's 20 strikeouts. and it's interesting for a guy, who always had a great arm, never showed anything close to you, has turned it on here, in what i believe is his fourth major league franchise, rockies, placed cook on the dl today. how will they fill his hole in in the rotation?mon >> they're concerned. it's his shoulder this time. t' had some toe and back but, with the shoulder problemma he may be down for a couple ofh weeks. the immediate option is probably josh fogg and adam eaton, i don't think he would be the solution. and they did send down the prospect, who struggled in his last start. i wonder, will you see him
7:09 pm
recalled, and reinserted into the rotation if they get desperate. >> talk about a prospect on the giants' side. fifth pick, posey, is playing well. any chance we'll see him come up to the majors? >> they could use him. i think he would be an immediate upgrade, over bengie molina, and providing energy. but, the recent talk, is that they are leaning against calling him up and wait until next year. and he might play on the baseball world cup team tournament coming up in september, and that would e lime nate him coming up next month. >> all right. keith, thanks for coming on with us. >> my pleasure. >> they are number 1 in every sense of the world, florida has been anointed the team to beat, by the a.p. poll today, and with no rematch against ole miss or

7:11 pm
it is. there's l.s.u. first time since 2003. but, right on the doorstep. boise state. >> coming up, mark martin gets the pole, and can he stay ahead of the pack, as the fireworks begin on the short track. bumpy return for brett favre, his current passing yardage total matches the number on his jersey. and the debut of vick, in a eagles' jersey is on course for next weekend. sal paolantonio brings us the latest on how the birds plan to latest (announcer)birds plan to what does greatness taste like? round of miller lite.

7:15 pm
starting upfront, is paramount as track position is key. martin is on the chase bubble. he and the other drivers know this is about survival. when it happens here, it happens fast. martin summed it up well, saying of the next three races it's going to be a dogfight. >> with three races left before the chase for the sprint cup begins, gordon, and johnson can lock up berths tonight. >> oh, this is golf. we'll get to brett favre, my bad. golf. golf. golf. they have gotten back on the course. rain delayed action, for a period of time, and chris riley only got through four holes, and now extended his lead two

7:32 pm
here's a.j. burnett, on the phoubtdz. and tazawa. and we thought it was advantage new york. >> i thought it would be roundsd advantage new york. burnett has some trouble here. >> that was cano, now, top of he the second, down, 3-0. tries to stretch it into a double. calling this a game-changing play. 14-1, but, at the time it seemed like it. and, this one turned it all loose. youkilis, crushing this. >> burnett's stuff, is so good but today, so in the middle of the plate. >> good time for the red sox, david ortiz, hit two balls hard. if they can get him going, him a number 6 hitter, that's a good sign. >> burnett asking himself, why did he throw that to him? >> look at the numbers. 14-1.

youkilis went yard twice. and 8th career multi-homerun. good news for tazawa. off of 20-11. we get, 14-1, the red sox have scored 25 runs, in two nights off the yankees. >> that's how i would look at it, if i were a red sox fan. if you look at their lineup, that's their a, number 1 lineup. when martinez catches and lowell, and youkilis. and it had j.d. drew hitting 8th and lowell hitting 7th. so, they have the hitters and now everybody starting to swing it.ictor m that's been the problem for about a month-and-a-half for the red they haven't gotten enough production. very difficult when you're in the same division with the raysi and yankees, who can hit. but, now, red sox are swinging it better.h,this and even gonzalez hit a homerun. he can hurt you in number 9. but, the question with the red sox, also, beyond their offense,
7:34 pm
